Miami's historic winning streak was stopped at 27 games by the Chicago Bulls last night. This was despite the Bulls being with one of their key players Joakim Noah along with the long-term injured Derrick Rose.

For a long time it seemed like nothing could stop the Heat's march to beating the 71-72 Laker's 33 game winning streak and it looked like it was going to continue against the Bulls when they came from 15 points down at one stage to take the lead late in 3rd quarter. This was the point at which anyone watching the game at 2am in Ireland thought, 'yeah, I've seen this one before' and went to bed.

The Bulls rallied back though, mainly on the back of Loul Deng who played 44 minutes, scoring 28 points and Carlos Boozer's 21 points and 17 rebounds.

The Heat now hold the record for the NBA second longest winning streak ever.
